Using the Career Compass to Find Your Work and Career with Douglas E. Welch 

Help People Stumble Across Your Work from Using the Career Compass To Find Your Work And Career 

 

Read the book

Douglas E. Welch (http://douglasewelch.com) presents to the class Career Development – Theories and Techniques at Pepperdine Graduate School of Education & Psychology taught by fellow CareerCamp Co-Chair, Danielle Gruen

The two biggest challenges are deciding what you want to do as a career and then building the career you deserve once you decide.

I discuss the Career Compass method of discovering your career wants, needs and desires and then using various social media tools to show people “What you do and how well you do it”

Transcript:

Someone is going to stumble across it. Someone is going to send you a question about it. Someone’s going to email you about it. Someone else is going to think “Hey, that’s pretty cool.” “I Built this robot that does that.” I guarantee you that if you do something like that people will come out of the woodwork. ‘”Oh that’s so cool. Have you thought about doing this and this to it or …?” Is has always amazed me the type of response you get from people.

Transcript:

We want to — to go back to our being on course metaphor — you want to roll with the waves of transition, ok. If you’re constantly fighting, you’re going to get swamped. The wave is going come over you and you’re going to be wiped out. Don’t be capsized. Don’t be drowned by the waves of change. Ride on top. Be that cork. Be that bobber, if you’re a fisherman. Be that bobber and ride on top of it by engaging in it. If you simply stand there at the shoreline and let the waves smack into you that’s self-defeating. If you ride with the waves — you dive into the waves — it’s simply going to be easier on you and you’re going to benefit much more from that.

Transcript:

If you have to explain a concept to somebody else it makes it easier for you to remember and understand it, because if you start asking yourself questions — you’re trying to explain it to someone who knows nothing about it or is struggling with it — and you have to go, “Why is it that way? What– oh–hold on” and you have to figure it out and then you can explain it to them, but it very quickly exposes the limits of your knowledge and things and so you can’t help but learn things more deeply, apply them in a better and help those around you. So, I highly encourage you to take your thinking. Take your thoughts. Take your — the neat things that you do. Whether company-based or personal-based — it does not matter — and start talking about them online. Please because the big thing that’s going to do and everything else I’m going to talk about is going to do — it’s going to start attracting opportunities to you.

Don’t Reject Opportunities In Your Life from Transition is the New Normal 2016 [Audio] (0:47)

Don't Reject Opportunities In Your Life from Transition is the New Normal 2016

Listen to this clip

 

Transcript:

Transition often comes in the form of an opportunity and again opportunities presented can be very scary and our first issue is to say, “Oh I couldn’t possibly change and do that.” You’re not even going to talk to them? You’re not even going to investigate what this new job is? I’m not saying you’re going to take the job. You’re not saying you’re going to move to Wisconsin. You’re not saying you’re going to do this. You’re just investigating. You’re just checking it out. At least, challenge yourself to step over that little bit of fear to at least investigate, because so often I see people who simply — when given — opportunity, as I say, knocks on the door and they slam the door in its face. That’s like, “Oh gosh, don’t do that.” Yes, that opportunity may not be for you, but how do you know if you don’t find out more about the opportunity.

…and I know learning by doing these days is coming and going. We’ve got this whole “Maker Ethic” that’s coming out now about getting kids hands-on, STEM and STEAM programs and stuff like that. I personally think that the best way to learn is having some component of doing. Yes, there are certain things you just need to learn, but there’s also — if you can learn something and apply that learning immediately in some physical or useful or productive method. For me, I know that would lock in facts that I retain to this day from my high school botany class that I should, by no rights, need or want to remember, but they are burned into a groove in my brain because we talked about it in the classroom and we went down to the greenhouse and we did it and that has always been so effective for me. This is one form of your doing.

Engage with Transition at EVERY Opportunity from Transition is the New Normal 2016

Listen to this clip

 

Transcript:

To finish up today…kind of reiterate some of the things we talked about. Transition is normal down to using your opposite hand to write with. It’s normal and the feelings it generates are normal. That uncomfortableness. That fear. That clumsiness. That — the fact that sometimes you feel a little stupid with this hand, but it is normal. It’s with us in everything we do. It’s with us when we miss the turn on the freeway and go up an exit. It’s just there. You deal.   We need to keep — we need to engage in transition at every opportunity that we see it. We need — wee need to stop — if you’re doing this — avoiding it and pushing it away. We need to reach out and shake its hand and engage with it. Frankly, because transition is where so many opportunities will come in your life.
